Bacon Granola? Yes, It’s Paleo

bacon + granola

Yes, it’s real paleo granola with bacon in it.

If this brilliant combination has never before crossed your mind, you’re now probably wondering what you’ve been thinking. If nothing else, you might just throw a handful of bacon in your granola from now on every time you eat it.

Just like those little synthetic bacon bits we used to throw in our salads in the 80’s, real bacon can be chopped up into small pieces (go figure!). At this size, it can easily be tossed in with granola, trail mix or even mixed nuts.

With granola, bacon not only adds a salty flavor, but also a chewy texture. People who like beef jerky will appreciate having a little meat with their snack, and of course bacon-lovers will like it too.

But Forget the Bacon…

If you’ve never tried Steve’s Paleo Krunch grainless granola, you’re in for a treat. I ate an entire large bag on my first introduction. In my opinion, it’s like comparing a crunchy granola bar to a chewy one.

This grainless granola is crunchy, but is not dry and brittle. It’s more dense and flavorful and definitely has a chew to it. It’s addicting, so watch out. Its denseness doesn’t come without calories.

But Wait, there’s Good News: Bacon Granola.

Paleo Krunch Bacon GranolaThe good news is that you can get this healthy snack in a personal-size pouch. Although the smaller-sized packs are not gigantic, the portions are filling and easy to carry with you.

No need to worry about over-eating, unless you open 12 of them that is.

Of course, this granola has plenty of flavor to be enjoyed plain right out of the bag. However, don’t forget that you can add it to oatmeal, ice cream, salads, yogurt, trail mix, ice cream, smoothies, pancakes and more.

Even Safe for Kids

You can even give it to your kids and be happy that they are not eating Cap’n Crunch. Nothing against the Captain – just saying.

The Bad About Bacon Granola…

The downside to these convenient little snacks is that they are messier than the bars. Although you can’t easily sprinkle a protein bar over your ice cream, granola can sometimes require 2 hands to eat it out of the bag.
